Airport bosses say Newquay's new air link to Dublin will boost tourism.

The Aer Lingus service will run five times a week starting in May next year.

We are told passenger growth will continue into next year.

Managing Director Al Titterington tells us there should be more new routes to come.

He said: "We have seen growth in the airport over the last 12 months, and we see this trend continuing into 2015 and beyond, the upwards trajectory in terms of passenger numbers will continue, and we are very confident there will be further announcements with new route opportunities from the airport.

"The route is predominately about tourism, which will give a really good shot in the arm for Cornwall's tourism industry itself, but it also gives the opportunity for those business and leisure travellers who are going to the USA."
